Summary

The year is 1881, and the SS Atlantica heads for New York City with first-class passengers expecting the very best of everything but never expecting murder. Among them, quite by chance, is the finest amateur detective in the British Empire. 

When Lord Fothington is stabbed to death, and none with motive could also have been present at that time, Peregrine Sebastopol is intrigued. When the same victim is inexplicably murdered a second time, Sebastopol faces the most baffling crime he has ever investigated. He had better beware, though.... A ruthless killer is still at large and is not finished yet.

a murder mystery, with bells on

at first I thought I wasn't going to like this, but after giving it a chance I really enjoyed it. atmospheric and full of twists and turns, I genuinely did not guess who the killer was. loved the framing device, and it turned out I did it!! I won't explain how that can be the case but if you like Poirot, or sherlock holmes then you should be getting on board with Peregrine Sebastopol.

kept me guessing

I loved this book. I am very partial to spending a sunday afternoon watching an Agatha Christie murder mystery or a sherlock holmes and this reminded me of that. same period setting but with some nice touches of satire which I really liked. I didn't guess who the killer was, although in hindsight perhaps I should have. nicely framed narrative structure and I would urge you to listen carefully from the start.

Really enjoyed this audiobook!

I know a good murder-mystery when I hear it, and I really liked listening to this one.

The writing and narration are very good and I like the twists and turns in this story.

Looking forward to listening to Marc's next Peregrine Sebastopol mystery.

Good old who done it

A good old fashioned murder mystery that starts slowly and builds towards a surprising ending. Some cheeky touches that play on the cliches of the genre and some subtle references to other literary characters made this a clever piece of work. Well worth listening to as very enjoyable.

Little things wrong with this

This is a pretty good story, although I knew what the solution was long before the resolution--which is unusual because I never make an effort to figure out "whodunit" before the end. This was pretty obvious, though. I liked the reader's voice--but he kept making mistakes. At first I couldn't tell whether the author had used the wrong word or the reader had mispronounced: "endangered" for "engendered," for instance. But then there were lots of others and I decided it was mispronunciations. The author's style is REALLY wordy; he could benefit from some editing. And unfortunately the reader ran sentences together, exacerbating the wordiness issue. He took breaths at awkward times in the paragraphs. Still, the characters were fun; I do wish the men's voices didn't sound so effeminate and the women's voices didn't sound so strained. I sound like I didn't like this book. I liked it. I did not love it. I give it a C+/B-.
